Poetry Friday: The Blue Robe

This is a sweetly captivating poem by Wendell Berry, a man who clearly knows what true marital love is.

Have a lovely Friday!

The Blue Robe 

by Wendell Berry

How joyful to be together, alone
as when we first were joined
in our little house by the river
long ago, except that now we know

each other, as we did not then;
and now instead of two stories fumbling
to meet, we belong to one story
that the two, joining, made. And now

Read the rest here.

Oh these line got me:

"how joyful to feel the heart quake
at the sight of a grandmother"

Wiping away tears.
